It seems like smail is set up OK, but fetchmail is not. You don't
actually have a user on your local machine named pcr387, do you? You need
to tell fetchmail to deliver mail to your username, 'david'. So your
fetchmail stuff should look something like:
is david here
Note the 'is david here' line. That's what tells fetchmail where to
who gets the mail on the local machine. Give that a try and see if the
error goes away.
